Martin Luther King Jr.

Martin Luther King Jr and his daughterFrom Time.com:

King said in an interview that this photograph was taken as he tried to explain to his daughter Yolanda why she could not go to Funtown, a whites-only amusement park in Atlanta. King claims to have been tongue-tied when speaking to her. ‘One of the most painful experiences I have ever faced was to see her tears when I told her Funtown was closed to colored children, for I realized the first dark cloud of inferiority had floated into her little mental sky.’

May we find inspiration in his work to continue to right the wrongs in our society. And from Stevie Wonder, the song he wrote to promote the establishment of a national holiday to honor Dr. King.
